Your AC and heating system uses more energy and drains more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Experts say that typically, 46% of your utility bill goes for heating and cooling. No matter what kind of system you have in your house, you can save money by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment. The other important factors are having appropriate insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings. Here is some other important information:
- You can save as much as 10% a year on your utility bill by turning back your thermostat back 10% to 15% for 8 hours a day. You can do this manually or by having a programmable thermostat installed.
- Have your duct work checked for leakage and/ or poor insulation. Your system could be losing much of its capacity because of duct work that is in poor shape.
- Avoid placing lamps or TV sets near thermostats because heat will be detected and will cause the air conditioner to run longer.
